Reviewer Comments: We had read online comments about the musty odor when you first arrived and that was still true for our stay. The property though was spotless and absolutely adorable! After airing out, it was fine. The doors stuck and the shower rod curtain needed to be replaced (it kept falling when you'd pull the shower curtain to close). But the property was really nice. We'd stay again.

Reviewer Comments: We stayed 1 week and really enjoyed our vacation!The property was exactly as pictured, very clean, convenient location. We never got to use the pool, but we saw others use it, and it was cleaned regularly as well as were the area around the cottages. The office staff were very nice and helpful. The only thing I would caution is the parking. As stated in the property description, there are some spots available, however only 5 spots for what appears to be 7 properties. We only got a spot 1 day I think. We did get 2 parking tickets along the street which totaled $90 :( Just be aware of where you park. Overall the stay was FABULOUS and I would do it all over again :))

We love the location and the little cottage. Looking forward to our return next year!

The property manager was more than helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Generally, when I rent a lodging for a day or week or month, housekeeping is included in the fee. Nowhere in your conversations or the literature online did you state I would be responsible for washing my own towels and linens. Nor did it say that I would need to secure the key for the room from across the island in order to get into my room. I had some problem with a disappearing wifi connection but got no satisfaction nor remedy from the rental agency. I did enjoy my stay at the Colony celebrating my 36th anniversary..and would return to KW only if I could stay in the Colony. Now I know what to expect for parking arrangements and with those things mentioned above.. Many fond memories of our Colony visits..

The property manager was adequately helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We loved Key West and want to go back - immediately. Looking at alternate choices for housing I can't find any more perfect than Colony Poolside. It is three blocks off the quite end of Duval where the best restaurants are located. The cottage is bright, clean and decorated just like you would do it, assuming you were a professional decorator. Do not miss The Banana Cafe, Havana and 915 on Duval, make sure you go to Hemmingway House and the Butterfly Conservatory. All comfortable walking distance. The cottage does have a musty smell when you first get there. Not sure if this is from keeping a/c too low between rentals or possibly a cedar oder from a beautiful old cabinet that holds TV and other equipment. Turn up a/c, it will be gone in a day. Only real blip was check-in. We got there on a Sunday. Our taxi brought us to their office between 2pm and 2:20 and there was no key in lock-box as promised, no one answered emergency phone numbers. Our taxi took us to the cottage complex and we and our luggage sat in heat outside unit for about forty-five minutes before anyone called us back. Their answer was they don't put key out before 2:30 because they don't want you getting in before cleaning crew has finished. Make sure you understand all their access arrangements, and they understand your flight times, if you are going to arrive outside of normal offline hours, but they were plesent and responsive in other matters and have probably made changes to procedures to avoid this in future. They did make it up at back end by giving us late check-out to better match our flight schedule. We will be going back and will want to book this place when we do.

Close to CVS and Faustos for supplies, and still near enough to the nightlife and restaurants. Pool and grounds were well maintained. Will definitely stay with Rent Key West for our next KW vacation.
